35 Strategies That Shape Productivity

December 1, 2015 | By | 2 Comments">2 Comments


Did you know that the cost of interruptions to the U.S. economy is estimated at $588 billion a year!!! On today’s show, guest David Horsager joins me to talk about his new book, The Daily Edge, Simple Strategies to Increase Efficiency. 

Here’s what you will learn:

  • How to give focus and intentionality to the most important things every day through DMA’s (decision making actions).
  • Understand the meaning behind S.E.E.D.S. and why it is so vitally important.
  • Manage your energy
  • So much more….

Let’s dig in.

    Nothing helps me be more productive than a Time Budget + Time Diary. About once a quarter I will map out my week in 15 minute increments using an excel worksheet. I start with my top priority and work my way down filling in blocks of time. Then throughout the week I keep this document open in one of my monitors about half width and log what I actually did in comparison to what I had planned. This may seem excessive but when I go through this exercise I get twice as much done as I would otherwise…despite the extra time planning and logging. The budgeting + logging makes me hyper aware of wasted time and time spent on things that are not priority. This exercise is pretty intensive and truthfully a little exhausting. I purposefully limit it to a week every couple of months. During the rest of the quarter I do a simplified version where Sunday evening I plan out my week in my calendar blocking out time for important items but not to the detail of the time diary. During my “off weeks” I don’t take the time to actually log all of the detail.
